Liverpool stars have been wearing brain monitors as they desperately search for an advantage ahead of the Champions League final at the weekend.
The Reds face Real Madrid at the Stade de France, Paris on Saturday night hoping to complete a trophy treble of the Carabao Cup, FA Cup and Champions League.
And as reported by the Sun, Jurgen Klopp‘s players have been using brain sensors in the hope the cutting-edge technology from a German neuroscientist could give them an edge in the European showpiece.

Klopp is aiming to outmanoeuvre their Real counterparts with the forward-thinking technology, the brainchild of Dr Niklas Hausler and his business partner Patrick Hantschke.
Liverpool engaged the company neuro11 – of which Hausler and Hantschke are co-founders – to help players get ‘in the zone’ when they play.

Electrodes attached to the headpieces can reportedly deliver specific data for individual players and help the club tweak their training programme to each person.
Neuro11, who have been collaborating with Liverpool since last August, were approached by Klopp initially with a view to improving the club’s set pieces; Alexander-Arnold and Tsimikas both take set pieces regularly.
German boss Klopp is evidently keen for his team to eke out every mental advantage they can using the company’s services.
